This week we get advice for gathering and disseminating news via social channels, and we see how one of the major digital news organizations handles multimedia collaboration and experimentation.

PART 1: News for social platforms

The team at Reported.Ly has been experimenting with how to gather and deliver news primarily via social media channels for the past 16 months. We sat down with Deputy Managing Editor Kim Bui to hear some of the lessons they’ve learned along the way.

As explained in this detailed profile from Nieman Lab, “the work of Reported.ly is more than simple aggregation and amplification. A large part of their work is trying to verify and factcheck reports already circulating.”

PART 2: Huffington Post multimedia

The Huffington Post has created a team called Test Kitchen whose duties include exploring new platforms and tools such as 360-degree photos, virtual reality and drones. Marc Janks, manager of multimedia, explains how it works.
